Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family with two young boys that have recently returned to this unique, culturally rich city. We love Mid-City and all of the positive changes that have occurred here.

Why the Owner Chose City Park, New Orleans, LA, USA:
The Cottage is a separate structure on a double lot that we purchased at the same time as the master house next to it. When the previous tenant left, we decided to fix it up and give visitors a chance to see New Orleans like a local.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking proximity to so many entertainment options, including Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, the Fairgrounds, City Park and Endymion, as well as the ability to easily get downtown to the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, the Central Business District and the Super dome.
